A huge skeleton under the forest
dancing heat to the veins of moss
on a screen of rock.

Bones ragged with maps
crossing the divided air.
Paths in valleys of hardened sap
shimmering far and raw
on the distant earth.

Aisles between crates
multiplying in the scaffold's ribs.
Brightness parting the metal sheaves
that guard the ceiling's birth.
Slick wood littered with mouths
snaking trunks and knotholes.

Mass rising with a chain of caves
and a man's head in golden ware.
